difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of more taxes than warren buffett, i think you get the sense that it not fair. when you have lornarge corporats and big oil companies raking in huge profits and not paying taxes that, is not fair. >> if you look at the oil

of the rules of the obama administration put out was to say that if you're going forward with any sort of project you're going to have to tell us how much carbon that will put out into the-- so it's called the nipa analysis and that's like putting a ten pound weight on everybody's ankle. >> sean: that's a hundred pound weight. >> it sounds like a minor bureaucratic detail, but it will strangle-- >> you guys will weigh in and i hope you'll pick a fight with you here. i've got to tell you, dana, they're not doing this, not taking this message to the american people. if you tell the american people we can save social security, medicare, balance the budget get out of our financial troubles, build schools in your community and prisons whatever else they need to build, we'll have a lot of money left over. why aren't the republicans wrapping their arms around this and screaming it from the roof tops? >> republicans do not the have someone who is pounding the table with a positive message about growth, prosperity and the economy. >> sean: come on, stuart. >> i can do it. >> sean: why isn't som

on a politically charged bill that would block the obama administration from waving any work requirements to receive welfare. the house republicans accuse the president of trying to gut the work requirement that was passed back in 1996. the white house says that requirement creates bureaucratic hurdles for states in placing welfare recipients. to the american southwest new concerns over securing our southern border there as spending changes in washington are expected to reduce border patrolman power. meanwhile there is new attention on the technology that will be put on the front lines there. william la jeunesse has seen it firsthand at the border security expo in phoenix, arizona. william, good morning, there. >> reporter: bill, as you know a lot of the border is very rugged, it's mountains, canyons, of course the rio grand. you cannot build a physical fence there. the border patrol relies on a series of ground sensors to detect people coming in but also long-range cameras like this one that can see day and in it to tell them where illegals are and where they are going. >> the product is
the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s

the obama administration argued that we didn't need to take these steps that are being announced today. and there was pushback in congress, individuals saying, no, actually, we do need to do it and because they thought north korea would take the steps and be in the place where they are today. >> all right, jake tapper, thank you very much. exactly what jake will be covering on his new show and we'll remind everyone, jake has a new show on cnn, called "the lead" with jake tapper, debuts on monday the 18th, 4:00 p.m. eastern, here on cnn. >>> so we know north korea does have missiles. how many? and what kind? still unclear. we also know they're stepping up their nuclear capabilities, conducting testing in underground sites. chad myers is here now. talk us through the actual threat here, can they reach us? >> i think unclear is the best word you used. we think now that about 7,000 kilometers to 10,000 kilometers would be the longest icy they could launch. let's give you an idea of the rings. looks like an earthquake ring, but it is not. one more time, zoom back out, how far could this pos
on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a brea
of the reasons the obama administration said it's important to continue the spending by the united states here in israel. $3 billion a year in aid and the president got a tour of what some of that money bought. an iron dome missile defense system that had been very effective in guarding southern israeli cities against rockets coming out of gaza. that's one of the things the president has pointed to saying i support israel. i support israel's security and safety by spending money on the iron dome. the charm offensive continues later today. there is going to be a number of ceremonies, a number of private meetings and tomorrow, president obama takes his message directly to the israeli people. he has a speech televised heres0 college students where it's thought he is going to try and make his sell on his views not only on iran, but also on the palestinians and the greater middle east issues here in jerusalem. he's got an uphill battle. now a current poll in israel shows only 10% of israelis say they, quote, like the president. back to you in new york. >> steve: lee land vittert live where he's tal
? you mean we have to get up on something, mr. president? another senior administration official said that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for no to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't cau
ideological polarization within the doj's voting rights unit. under both the obama and bush administrations. >> there are two things. one, this predates mr. perez heading the civil rights division and, two, the attorneys that were making the decisions there were the career attorneys. >> reporter: perez's defenders say he has been working hard to clean things up. >> we believe tom perez has restored the integrity back to the entire division, including voting rights. >> and a reminder thomas perez has not been nominated. the conservative blogs are already turning on him and president obama is facing some pressure from minority groups to diversify his cabinet and bring in more minorities. but his candidate, whoever it is, will still have to be confirmed by the senate. we'll have to see at this point. i mean, again, his name is just being floated. we'll see if he is actually nominated, then we get to the confirmation battle. >> it could be a bruising confirmation battle. so far the president is winning. we'll see how he does in this one. thanks very much. >>> coming up a well known political in
-continental missiles. president obama stopped deployment of additional reenforcements when he took office you may remember back in 2009. now administration officials are saying they've reconsidered, in the wake of those escalating threats from north korea. last week north korea officials vowed to bring it to washington after the tough economic punishments. and now move to the persian gulf where an iranian fighter vet approached a u.s. drone in the skies above the gulf according to the pentagon. defense officials say it got within 16 miles of the unarmed drone while it was conducting a classified surveillance flight over international waters on tuesday, but what of the two u.s. military aircraft escorting that drone fired a warning flare and after that the iranian jet broke off pursuit. you may remember in november, the pentagon reported fighter aircraft from iran actually fired at one of our drones, but did not destroy it. u.s. officials maintain they have the right to protect our military assets. well, it could be a preview of the 2016 presidential race. some possible republican contenders speak
